April: Dancing Marionettes—Get ready for the annual Skirball Puppet Festival by creating a dancing marionette out of recycled and repurposed materials.


“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
